Update 3/24/08 -- In addition to topping 16,000 full members over the weekend, we rolled out a whole new slab of features and improved, including (but not limited to):
  • Member Profiles: We've adjusted the placement of items on profiles pages to use available space much more effectively, and we'll be offering even more flexibility on the layout of this page in upcoming releases (You'll be able to put just about any component anywhere, very soon). Plus, this release will feature new profile themes for you to choose from!
  • Members Section: Browse the latest and most popular members with an improved Members page.
  • Photos: Improved presentation and larger thumbnails on the photos page. Individual photo pages feature larger photos, improved comments posting and a user friendly style of the page.
  • Photo Albums: Easier searching, browsing and display of of member-created photo albums.
  • Videos: Browse more videos even easier with an improved videos page, and video detail page. You'll be able to find search and browse videos much easier! Plus larger videos if you upload a high-definition video.
  • Groups: Massive improvements here. Browse and search groups much easier. The groups page is also vastly improved, with Group Admins now having the ability to add RSS to the group page, group comment wall, control over who can send messages to the entire group. Be sure to check out some great discussions going on among our nearly 800 groups!
  • Forums: We've also spruced up Forum discussion pages. Here's the new design, featuring a new header style, smaller attachment icons and a more streamlined layout. More changes coming to the Forums in upcoming releases.
  • Blogs: Entries will now have a ton of breathing room and a new comment format. Plus an entirely new blog listing page, so you can quickly access all the latest and featured blogs in one place.
  • Also: We've also added a file upload button to our new text editor and a new more appropriate default icon to replace the 'ghost' image for members who don't have a profile photo.
  • And More: A new theme for the FFN home page and some easier ways to quickly access your favorite content. Look for even more changes in the coming weeks and months

thank you for the site.
Great job chief,keep up the good work.
I would like to see on members profiles the last log in date like some other sites have.
Amazing, now I see 16,000 when the first email I remember was we are almost to 1000 LOL Am I getting old quick, or is that number jumping quick? Choose your answer wisely lol
This is something alot of folks have requested and I've put in a request for the feature. Hopefully it will be included in an upcoming release.
would be nice to have an icon or something on the homepage to click to see who is online at any given time..like in chat you can see who is online
There appears to eb aproblem in the MEMBERS page.

When you select MEMBERS from the top lot of menus and start going through each page, there are multiple listings for the same profiles...
Is there a quick way to go into the forums and click "new posts" or similar to bring up all new posts versus going through them all?
